Maybe something like Dumoulin + for Connolly could work. Dumoulin is probably about as NHL ready as Connolly is, very solid defensively and has some offensive potential too.
I like Dumoulin a lot but he isn't fetching us a recent top-10 pick that's developing nicely. Even if that + is a 1st round pick, it's still not enough to get Connolly from Tampa. To get Connolly we'd need to give up one of Pouliot, Morrow or Despres - Dumoulin wouldn't be good enough main piece to get Connolly. And even with those three, getting Connolly from Yzerman would be tough, even if the value would be there.
